The Installation files are provided to the users either in 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) versions depending upon their version of Microsoft Word installed (i.e. x86 or x64).
A 32bit (x86) version of SmartWord4TFS cannot be installed on a machine with Microsoft Word 64bit (x64) installed on it and vice versa.
Most of the pre-requisite software tools (Office Interop Assemblies, VSTO and TFS Object Models) are also provided with to the users, in case they do not have them installed on their machines. However User has to get Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Word on his own.
It’s better to install the pre-requisite software tools before commencing the installation of
SmartWord4TFS, however in case they are not installed, the installer for SmartWord4TFS automatically installs these tools before starting the installation of SmartWord4TFS itself.
